The Dunedin Choral Society (reorganised) will give their first performance on Tuesday, in the Garrison Hall, when they will present ‘The Messiah.’ This glorious work is ever popular with the public, hut this performance ought to he especially so. The oratorio has been given careful study by a chorus of 120, under Mr Sidney Wolf, who has also directed special attention to an orchestra of 30, under the leadership of Mr J. Wallace, so as to havo all the accompaniments played as Handel wrote them. The soloists have been well chosen, and are as follow:—Miss M, Mitchell, Mrs H E. Browning (first appearance in New Zealand), Air E. Drake, and Mr H. F.. Browning. Miss E. Hartley will preside at the organ. The proceeds are to bn divided between the Red Cross, Belgian relief, and local distress funds. We are told by tho cables that tho work of the Red Cross Society “at the front ” is greatly hampered through want of funds. We know how badly in need of relief are the Belgians, and the great number locally distressed through the war. Souvenir programmes will be sold at 6d each to further augment the funds. Popular prices will be charged. The performance will start punctually at 7.45.
